“I promised my late husband I would not spend my retirement stuck in a rut at home, I want to make new friends and be around people as much as possible”

‘Barbara’ from South Shields, who came to A Future You to find activities where she’d meet those new friends.

Our Team

A Future You is run by Age Concern Tyneside South and Vision & Hearing Support, with support from South Tyneside Council. This is a pilot programme to try new ways of communicating with the people we support. We believe that by talking to you sooner, we can help you to help you live longer better, reduce the need for health and social care and reverse the effects of lockdown. You can learn more about the wider Live Longer Better campaign here.

Our team is expert in helping people to enjoy their retirement, stay connected, and age well. We’re looking forward to chatting with you and understanding what you need, what you’re interested in, and how we can support you.
